This week I am completing the final edit for my book which I find quite scary and then I will start working repairs on two table cloths that were given to me to mend at the end of December. I read a very interesting article about the art of mending and repairing and thought you might like to see some of the methods I use when making a repair. I hope to be able to share a before and after photo with you all in the next few months of these non- moth eaten table cloths! 😉

For those of you that use Facebook please do keep an eye on my new page that’s specifically for Embroidery. I am trialing an ‘open page’ so you are all more than welcome to upload images and comment.

Wishing you all the very best for a successful 2016.
